It's been a REALLY long time since I posted here. I have been posting in my myspace blog, but my mom doesn't have a myspace so she can't read it. I am going to try to post here more often so she can keep up if she wants to.

So, a quick recap. We ended up doing 4 IUI's with no success. Every time David's sperm count was excellent, and I always had three huge follicles, but no BFP. We finally decided to do IVF in May, but with my summer school, we postponed it until August. Now that I know exactly what happens, I totally could have fit it in but I think this is for the best. If this works, and it will, I will be due the beginning of June. Perfect.

So we started the drugs on August 30th. Everything went really well. I actually managed to lose weight but not my mind. I never got overly emotional, but I was a bit clingy. Not to bad.

We had retrieval on September 9th. They retrieved 15 eggs. 8 were mature and 8 fertilized. Actually and 8 made it blast stage. The embryologist said that usually only 50% make it so we beat the odds there! They were all perfect so I don't know how she picked to most perfect ones but we transfered two yesterday. I have pretty much been in bad since then. I have such high hopes for this cycle. I know it sounds silly, but if everything has gone so well so far, it has to end well!

Oh the only thing that has sucked is the PIO shots. But I read a blog on them and if I heat up my butt before, lay ont he bed with my feet hanging off, then it's SO MUCH BETTER! I even managed to get rid of the lump from Friday!

My ovaries are a bit too big though so I am on baby aspirin and heparin for a few days. Beta is September 23rd, right around the corner... I am so excited!!!!!
